This needed to be done! I love books that make me gasp out loud at the plot twists/reveals, and no books seem to do that better than ones involving heists or cons. Some of my favourite books have kickass thieves or con artists as their protagonists, and I just had to share ’em with you. Unfortunately, I couldn’t come up with more than five, but they’re awesome enough anyway!

  1. The Curse Workers by Holly Black. Not only are these people con artists, they’re magical con artists. You need to read this series.
  2. Gentleman Bastard by Scott Lynch. I cannot talk this series up enough. I mean, high fantasy criminals! And the plot is always so clever, constantly keeping you guessing.
  3. Arcadia by Kai Meyer. These books are about the Sicilian mob… who are also shapeshifters. I adore them!
  4. Heist Society by Ally Carter. Ally’s novels are always super fun, and Heist Society is no exception. The characters take badass thieves to a new level.
  5. Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer. Uh, no regrets. Young criminal masterminds? Yes, please.
